Twelve Steps To Lunacy


JEALOUSY
“Why does God get all the adoration? Why not me?”
The sin of pride


ENVY
“If I can’t have what God has, I’ll destroy him.”
“To hell with God!”
“I’m God!”


DESPAIR
“There’s nothing of any worth.”
“Nothing exists.”
“Everything is shit.”


EGOTISM
“I’m the only one who counts.”
“I’m the only one who exists.”


SOLIPSISM
“I can do whatever I want, and I’ll get away with it because I’m me!”


EMBARASSMENT
Awareness of my vulnerability, weakness, inadequacy, and limitations


FEAR
“They’ll expose my faults. They’ll make fun of me.”


ANGER
“The bastards! I hate them!”
“I hate the world! I hate the way things are!”
“I’ll fight against it! I’ll fight against Nature itself!”


THE CRIME
Offensive behavior, nonconformity, protests, opposition, arguing
Contrariness, stubbornness, eccentricity, rebellion
Resisting the birth contractions, turning myself around in the womb
Breech birth
My sister said, “You just want to be different.”
Suicide?
Murder?


THE COVERUP
Ignore it, it’ll go away…nobody will notice…
Clean up the scene of the crime!
Make everything look OK.
Smile.


THE LIE
The claim of innocence
“I can’t remember.”
“I don’t know what happened.”
“What’s going on?”


THE ARTFUL DODGER
“I feel awful about this.”
“It happened on my watch.”
“There’s no other explanation – somehow I let it happen.”


THE LUNATIC
“Since I’m God, I accept responsibility.”
“Since I’m being so honest, you must forgive me.”
